Pictured here from a small wooden deck is Drake Falls. Drake Falls is a cute little watershoot, maybe 45 to 50 degrees in slope.

A sign there reads:

Drake Falls was named after Mr. J.D. Drake, a Silverton photographer. He was instrumental in the creation of Silver Falls State Park, which was dedicated on July 23, 1933.

The fall is a steep rapid rather than a vertical waterfall. The layers of rock are equally hard and erode at the same rate.
